Posted Breed: Brussels Griffon / Shih Tzu. It is unclear if a cuter dog ever existed!? Please meet Snuggles, the most adorable dog on the planet. We think she is a mix of Brussels Griffon and Shih Tzu weighing a petite 6 pounds. She was found as a stray and after days waiting for her owner to claim him, they didn’t. We feel honored and privileged to give this 11 year old snuggle bug (hence the name) her 2nd chance at getting the love and life she deserves. She is sweet with everyone, prefers to be on you lap or in your purse and has lovely calm energy. When you look at her, she looks like a pup! Of course her silly tongue is one of the many charming things to love about snuggles! She is healthy, up to date on vaccinations, spayed and microchipped.

More About Brussels Griffon Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Age: Adult
      Location: West Hollywood, CA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever. Bailey is a 3 year old loving yellow Lab mix who is full of puppy energy and has so much love to give. Weighing about 70 pounds, we assume she has had zero training, but she sure is eager to please, learn and love. Bailey is perfection for someone looking for a dog to keep them in shape and sharpen their training. She would do best in an active home that is willing to provide the boundaries she needs to learn her manners. Bailey is super smiley, affectionate and all around a fun loving companion. We are uncertain how she is with other dogs at the moment so we would prefer her to be an only dog at this time. Perhaps some socialization will change that dramatically! Bailey is healthy, up to date on vaccinations, spayed and microchipped.
